    This article explains that the use of NAC or Vitamin C during immflamatory times, causes them to be pro-oxidents and cause more muscle damage. Very very interesting article.

    Interesting.............looks like I'll be dropping the Vit. C immediately after my workouts and do what Hulk said and try taking it at different time later on in the day.

    I have seen studies that attempted to correlate viatmin C usage pre workout to fat loss and they did find a positive correlation, but I don't believe it was through any particular pathways. I think this study is much more in depth in that it explains that it has a pro-oxidative effect during high inflammationary periods.
